Hi,
I have MSI Tomahawk B350 with UEFI 7A34v1OR.
I have pre order the AMD 3300X. I am in need for memory
I would prefer 16 GB kit.
I would like run CPU CCX and Memory clock 1:1 ratio with tight timings.
I would rather have stability over speed.
I would not like most expensive memory, but I am ok best bang for the buck.
I need recommendations
MSI has publish the QVL, which is some what limited
Crucial Model CT16G4DFD832A.16FE1
SK hynix Model HMA82GU6DJR8N-XN
Kingston Model KVR32N22D8/16
Samsung Model M378A2G43AB3-CWE
Micron Model MTA16ATF2G64AZ-3G2E1
TEAM Model TED416G3200C22BK

Newegg has the G.Skill Flare-X on sale for $99 currently. Should be Samsung B-die.

3200MHz CL14 1.35v


I'm not sure what's up with the memory compatibility list on MSI's website. If you back peddle down to the 2xxx series then there's a massive list of compatible memory including the above modules. I really doubt they've dropped the compatibility on them. If it was me I'd roll the dice and try them out.

You can find cheaper memory, but better bang for buck and tight timings?

My kit will do 3800 CL15 @ 1:1 1.43v's, but YMMV.

Thank you, now it would be silly question, how I can tell CCX is one to one ?
CPUz can show me FSB : DRAM, is it what tells us ?
I like to tight timings, they advertise 14-14-14-34 with speed of DDR4 3200 .
Appears good.

You'd look at the NB Frequency in CPU-Z memory tab. If the NB Frequency and Dram Frequency show the same numbers your in 1:1 mode.
